In this video, explore document raster effects.
- [Instructor] Many vector purists like…to talk about things being 100% vector,…and if they're talking about their approach to work,…then they're quite on the money with that,…but here's the shocking big news.…Everything becomes raster at the end of the process,…and in fact, even while you're working,…some of the effects used in Illustrator,…such as drop-shadows and outer glows actually create…what's called a runtime image while you're working.…
Now I've got an RGB file just here,…it's from one of the art and illustration defaults,…and I'm gonna zoom in on the eye…of this low-poly, '80s wolf just here.…And you can see the pixels just there…that this is generating with the image…in contrast to the sharpness of the vectors.…And that's just fine that it's doing that.…Like I said, everything ends up as an image in the end.…
